Pneumatology

bibleschoolbanner

The word Pneumatology comes from two Greek words which mean “wind, air, spirit” and “word” – combining to mean “the study of the Holy Spirit.” Pneumatology is the study of God the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity. There is hardly a more confusing subject to be found in the Holy Scriptures, among religious people, than the identity, work and mission of the Holy Spirit. Many Christians have an unbiblical perception of the Holy Spirit. Some understand the Holy Spirit as a power or force given to us from God. This is not Biblical. Pneumatology teaches us that the Holy Spirit is a Person, with a mind, emotions, and will.

The Person of the Holy Spirit has been subject to much discussion and debate throughout the history of the church. The Bible mentions the Holy Spirit synonymously with God, and Jesus commands His followers to baptize in the name [singular] of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19). Scholars point out that these and other teachings help us understand that the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Triune Godhead.
